Thank you to all who attended the NWA Haiti Relief meeting on Tuesday, May 26th. It was amazing to see all of those with a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.
A few things were clear…
- There are many relief efforts already underway by the incredible people of NW Arkansas.
- We all have a lot to learn.
- No one organization or group can do this alone, and there are many opportunities to increase the impact through collaboration and communication.
Thank you to Craig Miller of Thirst No More & Chris Marlow of Help End Local Poverty for sharing their plans for Haiti relief. For more information on both of these organizations, please visit their websites for periodic updates.
